There is a lot of buzz around this 13-inch laptop in the computer market and hence we are here to provide you with every minute detail of this ultrabook. By the end of Dell XPS 13 review, you will be 100% confident in your decision of buying this laptop. So without further ado let’s dive into the super thorough review right away.
Dell XPS 13 Design:
If you look at the ultrabook line up from Dell, you will not see any blunt variation in terms of style and performance. But in 2018, Dell has revolutionized the way of looking at a laptop. The Dell XPS 13 9370 is amazingly impressive for its looks. The almost borderless screen and an awkwardly placed cam is the overall highlight of the new ultrabook. The laptop stands out with its optional gold-and white color scheme. You won’t find such color patterns in Dell XPS 13 9350 and 9360 model.
The ultrabook is super light and weighs just about 2.56 pounds. This means that XPS 13 is 0.4 pounds lighter than Apple MacBook Air 13. With a thickness of 0.4 inches, this ultrabook defeats Hp’s Spectre 13
. No matter what color options you choose, Dell XPS 13 is slimmer and lighter than other competitive ultrabooks in the same price range.
The laptop is super portable and one can easily carry it anywhere. Unlike Macbooks, this ultrabook does not require laptop sleeve. The unibody aluminum design is built to last long. Not to forget the use of carbon fiber material under the flap. Carbon fiber enhances the overall strength without compromising the light weightiness.
Dell XPS 13 Display:
All the buzz in the market is because of Dell XPS infinite screen. At the first look, the screen will grab your attention. It is almost bezel-less and that is why images look more popped up. When we run video at 4k resolution, the laptop performed very well. In comparison with other premium ultrabooks such as Lenovo X1 Carbon, the pixel density was found much more saturated. In all, the screen is more crisp and sharper as compared to previous models.
Dell XPS 13 Specifications:
Well, enough has been said about the look and design of the laptop. Laptop’s design goes in vain if it fails to perform under working conditions. Therefore let us now take a look at the XPS 13 specifications.

The above configuration is sufficient to play mid to high-level games, multimedia tasking, and all day browsing. if you are a music lover, you will find the speaker quality much better than the Asus Zenbook 13 laptop.
Dell XPS 13 Ports:
In order to maintain the overall size and thickness, Dell XPS 13 compromised with the number of ports. We have seen a number of ports on much cheaper ultrabooks such as Asus Zenbook 13. There are no USB Type-A and full-size SD-card reader ports. All you will find is three Thunderbolt ports on the left-hand side. You will also find a USB Type-C with a micro-SD port on the right.
Dell XPS 13 Battery:
You have a monster laptop and do not have enough juice to make it work all day, it is not worth it. Dell claims that the XPS 13 provides 14 hours of undisturbed working experience. Upon testing, we found that the laptop actually lasts for about 12.5 hours. Well, this is sufficient but also super exciting. On a comparison between Dell XPS 13 vs MacBook, we found that air battery life could be much better the company could remove the unnecessary built-in apps.
Dell XPS 13 Keyboard:
Dell never compromises to showcase its classical laptop qualities: the inputs. Rest assured the keyword and trackpad have been untouched in their look and feel. During our review, we found that keys have 1.2 mm of travel which is good. The keys are very comfortable and remain semi-silent while typing.
The trackpad is super responsive. In fact, this is the most responsive trackpad we have ever reviewed on a Dell notebook. The overall dimension of the trackpad is quite comfortable but the material is prone to fingerprints. Please use Dell XPS 13 cover to get rid of the print magnet design.
